    Well I wanna do Mechanical Engineering at Imperial so would you recommend doing 4?
    I would do 4 if I were you, that's a highly competitive cource at a top uni and doing only 3 would put you at a disadvantage

    Thanks. I'll look into courses to swap Chemistry for and if I don't like any I suppose I'll just stick with Chemistry.

    I would, especially as they say that their entry requirements are "We require A*AAA or A*A*A in Mathematics, Physics and further relevant A-levels, one of which must be from Further Mathematics, Chemistry, Design and Technology, Biology or Economics." So if 4 A-Levels is commonly an entry requirement, I'd consider 4 AS pretty essential.

    Thats is probably because the ones on TSR are off years ago.My profile picture with the Mac is off Year 7.
    Fair enough, was just wondering.

    You would be marked down by Oxford, who compare results with what school you went to.My School's average GCSE Result is a D.
    My school vs yours in the League Tables:http://www.telegraph.co.uk/education...e.html?COMPARE
    Its really starting to kick in how well I did considering the school I went to.
    Also one on the main reasons my school got such good results is because it has incredibly strict academic entry requirements so the people who have got into the school are bound to do well..

    Congrats on getting in the newspaper!

    Whatever he says, the above sentence can't really be belittled at all. Fantastic achievement.

    Begrudgingly, congrats to him too, though I'd advise him that people would think slightly better of him if he was nicer to other high-achievers too.

    Thank you I was completely over the moon when I demolished that poor brown envelope and read them AQA chemistry, biology, physics and Edexcel maths (might do further maths as well but not sure whether it actually gives that much advantage and is worth that extra workload). What subjects are you doing?

    For what it's worth, taking 5 subjects really isn't a good idea. Uni's don't really care if you've taken more than the usual 4 AS / 3 A Levels... Much better to take less and get better grades.

    So you are doing 5 AS? Do you mind me asking why you decided to take 5? Because I am currently torn between 4 or 5

    I'm only doing 5 as my school don't count AS further maths as a subject so I have to do a 5th AS ( they wont let anyone do 5 otherwise ) and I would need further maths if I decided to go into engineering but im too bad to do full further maths ( in which case I would have 4 AS's ) ... so I'm basically doing 5 to keep my options open, if I could choose I would only be doing 4 as doing 5 has no advantage. What are you thinking of doing at uni ? if its nothing physics related then I wouldn't bother

    Not gonna lie - it was a hell of a lot of work (especially if you do other things like work experience, extra curricular's etc.). But you do learn quite a bit and it is (call me mad ) fun!

    What are their reasons?

    I quite enjoyed doing all three sciences. If you want to do them and genuinely have an interest in them, go for it!
